lawsuits that have been filed on the nsa program. we have congress holding hearings yesterday finally saying, wait a minute, that's not the law i thought i signed including the author of the bill, mr. sensenbrenner. i find it rather troublesome when i find that that white house press be secretary, mr. carney, goes to such lengths to say he's not a human rights act visits, he's not a dissident, and he's not a whistleblower. well, who made him king of the human rights community, right? i think -- >> [inaudible conversations] >> excuse me, i can't let this stand without giving neil mcbride, who has criminally charged snowden -- >> that's why -- >> -- a chance to respond. >> i have to say, i think it's a bad message for us to send for people who decide to take the law into their own hands they're doing a public service. >> can i think when the system has not worked. we have sued seven times to try to get the surveillance program before a proper court. we were kicked out of court. the clapper v. amnesty international where the justice department lawyer said it was a cascade of speculation

global cyber noise. i mean, his release of alleged nsa hacking of chinese computers was timed precisely a few days before our president met with the chinese president, where they would begin an honest dialogue about appropriate cyber behavior. and that, of course, turned into mutual recriminations as snowden's allegations allowed the chinese to pretend that there was some actual equivalent see, which between americans and chinese cyber behavior. so industry will have to do a lot more up here in their accustomed to doing down here. the government will be permanently late later by the we got to government speakers appear, and it doesn't offend them. i was government for 39 years. i tried my best, but i know culturally, politically, philosophically we are going to be late. the good news is, industry understands this a great deal. i've been out of government now almost five years and i've seen a migration of industry appreciation of the problem. when i first started working with the chertoff group after left government, we got to talk to ceos and css and cios. we talk to ceos now. we talk t

saying we can't move forward with this trade until we get much more rigorous both transparency on the nsa programs, but in the case of germany, a new agreement that the u.s. will not spy on germany. so this is not going away. it's not even going away after the german election, quite frankly. it will continue. it needs to be taken very seriously. there is now a real breach in confidence and trust that we have to manage and work through so we can get back to working on the bilateral engagement and agenda, and first and foremost is that ttip, is that trade investment. we can't allow this issue to sideline that. and right now, you know, it has the potential to do that. so he certainly will hear it, and he may, if he has an opportunity to have a sideline discussion which i assume he will with chancellor merkel in the corridors of the g20, he may hear additional words on that. >> well, it's a -- the revelations of the program are, i think, are hard to underestimate as a blow to, you know, u.s. credibility as a moral leader in places. and it plays perfectly into the hands of the russians and to

at the fisa debate. a lot of people looked at other stories we wrote about fisa, and about nsa spying and that sort of thing. it put a human face, i think, on the otherwise inpenetrable government bureaucracy system going on. nobody ever really stands exactly -- don't understand what is going on when nsa decides to tap someone's phone. and it was a nice way to sort of show that to people. >> i agree with john when he mentioned that people seem to be more plugged in to politics now than they have ever been. there are part of the explosion of media outlet on capitol hill covering politics since 2006, 2007.ort what you see is that people are only going places that reenforce their already-held opinions. so it's important -- we all -- all of our organizations do really well, is to provide an independent viewpoint or independent look at what is going on in in washington that is simplified enough for the common person, the nonpolitical person to understand but nuanced enough that, you know, you're not boiling it down to something where they're not getting anything out of it. like, i was talk

of the recent nsa disclosures that we're learning about is, you know, if you don't have members of congress and the u.s., the american people knowing about what the government is doing and the kind of extraordinary power they want to make the country safe, then, you know, you do risk the sense this will just be the kind of permanent war that will never end, and you will never be able to grapple, and that creates a national security bureaucracy. but that said, the idea that you just want to -- you know, if you were to say that we should repeal that aumf, then you would effectively be saying you don't think there currently is a war, and as tom said, the enemy gets a vote, and they're still at war with us. that's kind of where i'm at. >> let me just throw into the discussion, i'm pretty sure president obama suggested before the closing of the diplomatic outposts that the authorization for the use of military force, that congress should consider repealing it. but again, that -- >> or modifying it. >> or modifying it. very different, i guess. the idea of repealing it would be based on the narrat
